Banff Trail is a stop on the Northwest Line (Route 201) of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta. It opened on September 7, 1987 as part of the original Northwest line and is located on the exclusive LRT right of way on the East side of Banff Trail NW, 4.1 km Northwest of the 7 Avenue & 9 Street SW interlocking. The station consists of two side-loading platforms with grade-level access from a pedestrian crossing of the tracks at the northern end of the station.

The station is located east of the McMahon Stadium (which features 780 spaces available for commuters), Burns Stadium, and the Motel Village district, and north-east of the junction of Crowchild Trail and the Trans-Canada Highway. It also serves the neighbourhoods of Banff Trail, Hounsfield Heights, Briar Hill and St. Andrews Heights.

As part of Calgary Transit's plan to operate four-car CTrains by the end of 2014, all three-car platforms are being extended. However, Banff Trail Station was also refurbished in addition to a platform extension. Construction began in early 2014 and continued into Winter 2014-2015. This refurbishment required an extended closure of the station.

The overhaul was completed December 21 2014. It features new LED lighting, 16 HD security cameras, heated shelters and a much more user friendly, safer contemporary feel.

The station registered 2,900 daily boardings in 2005.[1]

In 2008, Banff Trail Station registered 5,600 weekday boardings.[2]
